Because regular uninstallers do not completely remove programs and leave files in /.wine and links in gnome panel, dekstop etc the FAQ gives the following instructions on removing all programs:

Wine has its own built-in uninstaller - the equivalent of Windows' "Add/Remove Programs" function for running standardized uninstallers. In recent versions, a shortcut has been added to Wine's menu, along with a shortcut to winecfg.

> Note that Wine does not fully implement everything required to cleanly uninstall all applications. Some uninstallers might not function at all. To remove all programs installed under Wine, remove the ~/.wine directory:
> rm -rf $HOME/.wine
> Also the uninstaller does not remove menu and desktop entries. To remove all Wine-created menu entries run the following commands
> rm -f $HOME/.config/menus/applications-merged/wine*
> rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine
> rm -f $HOME/.local/share/desktop-directories/wine*
> rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/????_*.xpm

What if one wants to remove just a single program and keep the rest intact?[/i]
